Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Image:
"The only disadvantage below the stylus 710 and 810 is the megapixel count and no image stabilization.6 megapixels, 2.5 inch lcd viewing screen, and a low price for what you get."
_
"I must say that while I'm thrilled with its superfast startup time, compact size and ease of use, I'm very unsatisfied with the photo quality."
_
"No, there is no viewfinder, so yes, it would be a pain to take a lot of high-quality pics in bright sun: if you need to do it, either be frustrated or rig a sun-shield to help you see the screen."
_
"Almost every 600 photo has big problems - whether blurriness or major red-eye or wierd lighting balance or lack of saturation, etc."
_
"While I'm not particularly knowledgeable about cameras, this Stylus 600 has worked very well for me for a number of years now and provides all the resolution and image quality I've ever required of a camera."
_
"I work in a photo lab, and I would recommend the Stylus 600 to all my customers."
_
"With excellent image quality, excellent durability, and tons of bonuses (Macros Mode for Close-Up Shots, Weather-Resistant Design), the Stylus 600 is the perfect camera for anyone who wants to snap a few photos here and there, slip it in their pocket and not worry about the rain destroying it."

_
"Some people have complained about the lack of a viewfinder, especially in low light conditions."
